Lorelin, the 17-year-old protagonist of Troll-magic, comes from a large family. In addition to her parents, she’s got 8 brothers and sisters!
As the eldest, Lorelin must help her mother quite a bit. Family chores are an ordinary and expected part of her culture, but she is generally willing to do the work. It’s only when chores interfere with her flute playing (which she loves) that trouble arises.
